Intel’s mainstream 9th-generation desktop processors will support up to 128GB of RAM

Intel’s mainstream desktop processors haven’t ever supported more than 64GB of RAM. And while there still isn’t a pressing need for a higher cap, Intel is already raising it. The chipmaker confirmed to AnandTech that its mainstream 9th-generation desktop chipscan handle up to 128GB of DDR4 RAM, paving the way for newer and denser memory technology.

Given the current prices of memory, these 128GB configurations are going to be really expensive. I don’t see many people paying that much for memory you don’t actually need, but it’s nice that mainstream processors are now on par with Intel’s high-end enthusiast chips. After all, it really doesn’t hurt to have better support and there will always be people who want to build super high-end rigs just for the bragging rights.
